Profiles in "Ecophysiology" Expertise Area

  • Arianne Cease is an Assoc Prof and Director of the Global Locust Initiative. She uses transdisciplinary approaches to study how human-plant-insect interactions affect agroecosystem and locust management sustainability.
  • Research focuses on understanding the different physiological mechanisms that allow animals to live in challenging environments, and whether these are enough to help them survive in a changing world.
  • McGraw is an integrative behavioral ecologist who primarily studies the colors of animals such as birds to understand the costs, benefits and evolution of visual signals.
  • My research seeks to understand how invertebrate herbivores solve the problem of balancing multiple and changing nutrient needs and how it affects their behavior and performance.
